A multi-national packaging company required assistance on a large scale asbestos removal and demolition project. The project consists of fifty individual areas/buildings (constructed between 1950 and 1980) as part of a manufacturing plant, spread over an area of twenty-five hectares.
The age and complexity of the manufacturing plant presented significant WHS hazards for the contractors involved. The sheer size of the plant meant identifying and removing friable asbestos and asbestos products a challenge, accompanied by a time-consuming process.
Due to the scale of the project, seven members of our team worked with the client and their contractors to ensure asbestos is clearly identified and marked for removal. Further which, a complete Asbestos Register is developed in time for the asbestos removal tender release. We provided our client with experienced and qualified technicians to supervise the asbestos removal, and provide monitoring services during the asbestos removal project.
We enjoyed the challenges of this project, and are proud to have participated in revitalising this iconic plant as it begins its next life as a housing and education centre for the local public.
